I recently removed the trojan Alureon, but have lost all my programs from the start panel. They seem to still be installed, and I would like to know how to get them to their previous state, including my system tools!!
I was able to relist 1 program back to the start panel, after uninstalling it and re-installing, but I want to have my system tools and other programs back to their original state, and am hoping there is an easier way to do so. My pc has windows
XP, 32 bit version. I was able to remove this trojan using Microsoft Essentials, but I have no idea how it got there in the first place! I am careful traveling the web, and was very surprised when I booted up and the attack was all I encountered.
